Today is a half day of school, so the children will be leaving at 11:45.  We will not have school tomorrow or Monday due to the Winter Break.  We will return on Tuesday, February 19th.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Half Day and Winter Break This Week

Thursday will be a busy day this week.  We will be having our spelling test first thing in the morning since we do not have school on Friday.  We will also be celebrating Valentine’s Day by passing out cards to all of our friends.   The students will go home at 11:45 and will be home for our Winter Break from Thursday afternoon until next week on Tuesday, February 19th.  I hope you have a relaxing long weekend with your family!

Valentine’s Day

Today the children will be coming home with a list of everyone’s name in our class.  They can use that list when they make Valentine’s Day cards all of our classmates.  Your child may make their own cards, or they can be purchased at many stores.   We will be passing out our cards during our Valentine’s Day party on February 14th.

This Week

Monday: Pizza Sale

Tuesday: Gleaners Food Bank

Wednesday: It is a late start day and we will have a bake sale to raise money for the children in Yemen.  Please drop off donations at the office.   We will also have our PBIS Reward Party!

Friday: PTA meeting at 9:00.  We hope you can join us!

What a Week

Well, this has be a very unusual week.  Hopefully Mother Nature will give us some nice weather and we can get back to normal next week.

If you have not signed and returned the report card envelope yet, please do it on Monday.  We will need it again when report cards go home again this spring.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone back to school on Monday.   Have a great weekend!

Marble Jar Party

We filled our Marble Jar again!  We will be having a Game Day Party tomorrow afternoon.  The children may bring a game or toy from home, including electronics.  Please make sure they know how to log onto wifi and the electronic is charged.

Testing Schedule

We are finished taking the iReady diagnostic, so everyone may begin going on iReady at home again.  Our goal is for the students to go on the site for 45 minutes a week.

We will be taking the NWEA reading test next Thursday, January 24th.  Please have your child visit the sites listed under Class Links for NWEA review as well as iReady to help them prepare for the test.  I will share the results with you on your child’s goal sheet in their homework folder the following week.
